4 and 20 blackbirds

A friend brought this tin full of charming hand embroidered dolls and accessories for me to see. It was given to her  children about 35 years ago. When you start to look more carefully it starts to make sense. The detailing is  charming....

 A king - looks like he is counting his money
 The queen is eating honey
 Tasty pie - plenty of blackbirds in there!

 Love the washing, particularly the crocheted bra
 Bit brutal this bit , surely that is not what I think in the beak of the blackbird?
